A Perfect Spot




Funny how when you gaze out a window, the slightest movement catches your eye.

Through the fencing something moved.  Seeing it at the base of a rock on the far side of our gravel road, I grabbed my camera.

  Hunting for mice I'm sure, he didn't waste too much time on the ground. 

Within seconds he
 flew to a nearby tree and sat perched...again for mere moments.  








Another Red-tail was in a nearby tree which made me more excited!!

Perhaps they're shopping for the "perfect spot" here in A Quiet Corner!

You won't be quite as happy if they DO take up residence and start shopping for lunch at your bird feeders.

Do mice go in the woods?

Fantastic! I just had some little birds catch my eye yesterday but I couldn't get to the camera quick enough. They don't seem to sit still very long like the hawks do. Great pix!
